Climbing adventure activities
What is rock climbing?
It is an incredibly fun activity requiring strength, determination and bravery, rewarding you with a great sense of achievement of getting to the top of the climb. A Pinpoint Adventure rock climbing session can involve the following:
- Bouldering (climbing without ropes but using bouldering pads – a crash mat)
- Rock climbing – single pitch (short routes) or multi pitch (longer routes)
- Weaselling (scrambling over and between boulders)
- Tyrolean traverses (a little bit like a zip wire)
- Abseiling (from crags, cliffs and buildings)
- Ghyll scrambling (climbing up a waterfall)
- Technical advisor session (Providing technical expertise to allow other instructors to deliver sessions)
We will always tailor a rock climbing course to your individual needs and aspirations.
Who can do it?
Pinpoint Adventure has no minimum age on climbing sessions although we always discuss what will suit you best to ensure you have a fantastic time. Otherwise so long as you are physically fit and healthy you will be able to go climbing. We work with all ages and abilities, including adults and children with special educational needs and disabilities. These sessions can be suitable for school groups, youth clubs, businesses, charities, friends and families, whether you are just looking for an adventure or as part of a team building experience.
Where can I do this?
The Pinpoint Adventure climbing sessions can take place at the following:
- Indoor climbing walls throughout the UK (although we often use climbing walls in Newcastle upon Tyne – North East England)
- Crags and cliffs throughout the UK (we often use crags in Northumberland, North Yorkshire – North East England and the Lake District, Cumbria – North West England)
- Your venue, whether you are a school or a business or you already have a venue in mind we can bring the equipment and our technical expertise to your site (we have delivered sessions at lighthouses, castles and areas of woodland). We will always do a site visit to discuss your requirements and explain what is possible.
